One Organization, Greater Possibilities

It’s official. 1to1 Movement has merged into The Ecology Center, an Orange County based nonprofit focused on creative solutions for thriving on planet earth. This alliance was born out of a mutual commitment to changing the environmental movement for the better, focusing on inclusivity, positivity, experiential learning, and innovative partnerships.  Together, we’re ready to take our shared vision of transforming homes, schools, workplaces, and communities to new dimensions.

Since our founding in 2011, we’ve been inspired by grassroots movements across the country and around the world. We’ve studied and learned from their successes, acknowledged our common roadblocks, and vigilantly pursued a path forward that prioritized transformation over inertia, impact over organization, and what’s right over what’s easy.

Mergers are more than a strategy for the lean times. As 1to1 Movement merges into The Ecology Center, we do so with strong standing – financially and programmatically. This merger is a strategy to increase our collective effectiveness, expand reach, grow capacity, coalesce talent, and build a stronger environmental movement.

According to The University of San Diego’s Caster Family Center for Nonprofits and Philanthropic Research, there were over 10,000 registered 501(c)(3) charities in San Diego County in 2016, including 1to1 Movement. That includes over 500 nonprofits focused on animals and the environment, a number that’s been steadily increasing. Why does that matter? Because we want to invest more time and energy in our work, and less time on administration and fundraising. By joining The Ecology Center, an organization with a strong record of innovation and sustainable growth, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.
